Notting Hill Penthouse

24th Jan 13

Energy Efficient Technology

The new Penthouse is situated on the top of two adjacent 1930s apartment blocks in London’s Notting Hill. The Brief asked for a breathtaking open living space that would maximise the available views and be a showcase for cutting edge technology.

A new storey was added to each block, one containing a large, open plan living space with dining room and kitchen and the other the bedrooms. A glass bridge connects the two spaces at high level and a new glazed lift shaft provides private access from a new landscaped courtyard.

The construction consists of a lightweight steel frame incorporating visible lasercut curved stainless steel columns to the perimeter. Custom-made, curved doubleglazed units provide a frameless envelope. Several panels are hydraulically activated to provide full-height ‘gull-wing’ openings. The linking bridge is formed entirely from structural glass.

The internal fittings include a moulded GRP coving providing hidden light fixtures and a new stair formed from reclaimed railway sleepers and hidden LED strips.
